Workstation and Modest Gaming Build

Hi there,

I'm building this computer for a buddy of mine. He'll be using it for mid-high range 3D modelling software (Fusion360, Adobe animate and photoshop, and other ones that I can't recall right now.)  Also, he does some moderate level gaming as well (warframe, rainbow 6, overwatch, GTA). Will this build be sufficient? He's just running one average monitor.

Any major issues? Any big ways to cut cost? I know the graphics card can be knocked down to a 560-70 and the ram can be 8 rather than 16 gigs to save some cash, would that be recommended? 

 

Thanks for reading.

Bumped up the GPU to a 1060, got a motherboard with built in WiFi so you don't need a USB thing, switched the SSD to a 120 GB to save money since it will mostly be for booting and added in a Cryorig H7 so you can OC the CPU comfortably.

If you just want to cut costs for the same performance this would be good.

Intel cpu is better for Photoshop and most Autodesk products.

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.
